Once you have identified that projects are appropriate for pavement preservation, the next step is to identify appropriate treatments and select the best option.

This 2.5-hour virtual training introduces a process for selecting appropriate preservation treatments, as illustrated by the flow chart. During the training, you will learn how to complete each step of the process. You will also complete exercises to apply the process using real project information.

You are encouraged to bring information about preservation treatments used by your agency to share in class. This may include treatment costs, treatment results, or materials issues. Your experiences can improve the treatment selection process for everyone!

By attending, you will learn to:

  • Use pavement condition and other information to identify appropriate preservation treatment options.
  • Identify decision-making factors to select the best treatment option.

This class is appropriate for anyone making pavement preservation project or treatment selection decisions.

Selecting the Right Pavement Preservation Treatments is an elective of the Road Scholar Program and part of the Pavement Preservation concentration.
